Mama Tried

EMILY FLAKE - MAMA TRIED

Saturday, October 17. 7-9PM.
Atomic Books.
Hampden, Baltimore.

To celebrate the release of her new book, Mama Tried: Dispatches from the Seamy Underbelly of Modern Parenting (Grand Central Publishing), New Yorker and MAD Magazine cartoonist, Emily Flake, will present a slideshow talk and book signing.

Flake relates the hilarious horrors of pregnancy, birth, and early parenting in this funny, poignant, and beautifully illustrated book.

MAMA TRIED is a relatable collection of cartoons and essays pertaining to the good, bad, and (very) ugly parenting experiences we all face. Subjects range from "are you ready for children?" to "baby gear class-warfare." With incredible honesty, Flake tackles everything from morning sickness to sleep training, shedding much needed light on the gnarly realities of breastfeeding, child proofing, mommy groups, and every unrealistic expectation in between. MAMA TRIED will be an indispensable companion for sleepless parents and a fond reminder for those already out of the woods.

RSVP (preferred but not required)
